Principal's Welcome Message

Welcome to Emerson Elementary School, the home of the Eagles!

At Emerson Elementary School, our mission is to foster a safe, respectful environment where students are empowered to take academic risks.  To establish this environment, our incredible staff works to build communities within our school and classrooms using Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS), monthly executive functioning themes to build students' skills, and frequent activities and celebrations to build relationships.  Our goal is that every person who walks through our doors feels they belong and looks forward to coming to school each day.  

The staff and I are grateful for our supportive and involved parents and hope you will join us in the collaborative effort of encouraging our students to persevere through challenges, instill a love of learning, and have a growth mindset!

Emerson continues to be a warm, close-knit neighborhood school for the Elmhurst, IL community. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Emerson family, and honored to be the principal of such an amazing place!

I wish you a fantastic school year! If I can be of assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.  My door is always open, and I can be reached at or 630-993-6607.

Ms. Sheleen DeLockery, Principal
